Death (Code Name Series #3)

by William W. Johnstone

For twenty years, ex-CIA agent John Barrone fought his country's dirty back-alley wars. Now, he spearheads a secret strike force of elite law enforcement and intelligence professionals on a seek-and-destroy mission against America's sworn enemies. In L.A., a teenage prostitute disappears. Months later, her billionaire industrialist grandfather watches as she stars in a porno film -- one that ends with her brutal murder. Now, Marist J. Quinncannon has hired Barrone to penetrate a viper's nest of sex for sale and murder for kicks. What Barrone and his team find is a snuff film kingpin with a 20-year grudge against Quinncannon -- a killer so powerful, he can only be taken down one way: with maximum force.

Death Dealer: the Memoirs of the SS Kommandant at Auschwitz

by Steven Paskuly Rudolf Hoss

By his own admission, SS Kommandant Rudolf Höss was history's greatest mass murderer, having personally supervised the extermination of approximately two million people, mostly Jews, at the death camp in Auschwitz, Poland. Death Dealer is the first complete translation of Höss' memoirs into English.These bone-chilling memoirs were written between October 1946 and April 1947. At the suggestion of Professor Sanislaw Batawia, a psychologist, and Professor Jan Shen, the prosecuting attorney for the Polish War Crimes Commission in Warsaw, Höss wrote a lengthy and detailed description of how the camp developed, his impressions of the various personalities with whom he dealt, and even the extermination of millions in the gas chambers. This written testimony is perhaps the most important document attesting to the Holocaust, because it is the only candid, detailed, and (for the most part) honest description of the Final Solution from a high-ranking SS officer intimately involved in carrying out the plans of Hitler and Himmler.With the cold objectivity of a common hit-man, Höss chronicles the discovery of the most effective poison gas, and the technical obstacles that often thwarted his aim to kill as efficiently as possible. Staring at the horror without reacting, Höss allowed conditions at Auschwitz to reduce human beings to walking skeletons - then he labelled them as subhumans fit only to die. Readers will witness Höss's shallow rationalizations as he tries to balance his deeds with his increasingly disturbed, yet always ineffectual, conscience.
